And here is what it looks like AFTER:
Of course, my little shadow (aka Snickers) snuck into this picture. This sweet little cat follows me around the house all day checking out what I am doing. :) When we took this little stray into our house, we weren't really sure if we would be able to keep him - now we can't even imagine not having him! He is the sweetest little thing!
Anyways, if you'd like to do your own lamp-makeover, it is really simple. Here is what I did.
(Sorry - some of these pictures are not the best quality.)
|Use a pencil to trace to length of fabric needed on the backside of the fabric.|
|Cut the fabric a few inches wider than the line that you traced.|
|Here he is - watching everything I do. :)|
|Fold and hot glue the fabric to create a seam.|
|Fold and hot glue to over-hanging fabric.|
|I had to snip the fabric so that it would fold around the metal pieces.|
|Everything is now glued into place.|
|I added this peel and stick beaded trim. (I found it at Jo-Ann's on clearance.)|
|Lastly, I hot glued this brown satin ribbon on the top and bottom edge of the shade.|
